Dr Rahib L. Kudto

(During Public Presentation by the Third Party Monitoring Team on 26 February 2016)

As a Moro myself, I can understand the frustration of many Bangsamoro people felt after the non-passage of the BBL in Congress. For several decades, they experienced several wars that killed many of their friends and loved ones; and for the past 17 years of negotiations, they have waited patiently for the Parties to reach an agreement that would allow the Bangsamoro to exercise their right to self-determination. They had already been through so much disappointments when the ARMM failed to address their political aspirations, and when the MOA-AD was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.

Before I start my message, allow me to convey my thanks and gratitude to the Australian government and its people through the Philippine Australian Human Resource Development Organizational Facility or PAHRODF together with the  partner institutions who worked for the realization of this program. Our appreciation to the Bangsamoro Development Agency (BDA), the Institute of Bangsamoro Studies (IBS), and the Philippine Center for Islam and Democracy for the support during our application process.
